White bread

Speaking at the NAACP's national convention Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said, "We might have assumed the American presidency would be the very last door of opportunity to be opened," Mr. Romney said. "Of course, it hasn't happened quite that way. Many barriers remain. Old inequities persist. In some ways, the challenges are even more complicated than before."

Romney didn't go into detail about those challenges, perhaps correctly assuming convention attendees would not be interested in the perspective of a white man with bank accounts in Switzerland and the Grand Cayman Islands on racial and economic inequity.
